The place and street names names used have been carefully chosen to reflect the existing place names of the area, historical place names and local historical figures and families who have resided or had an association with the area. There is a legend in the Book of Lismore of seven Bishops who set out from Tully/ Tulagh-na-nEaspag (Hillock of the Bishops) to visit St Brigid in Kildare. The Book of Lismore is one of the most important manuscripts of medieval Ireland having been written over 500 years ago.
Approximately one third of TC1 [Town Center 1] is allocated to residential use in the form of high density apartment development. This shall be located mainly in the quieter Bishops Street side of TC1 closest to Tully Park and shielded from the Wyattville Link Road. TC2 is predominantly (three quarters) residential. The design of this quadrant shall locate the residential use to its north, remote from the Wyattville Link Road, in close proximity to the residential plot north of Bishops Street on the edge of the Town Centre. TC3 has a significant (one quarter) residential allocation. This is to be provided in the form of apartments located mainly towards the southern/ south- western corner of the plot where they can benefit from a favourable southerly aspect and a more suitable environment generally. TC4 provides a significant proportion of the residential quantum within the Town Centre, contributing to approximately half of this quadrants total land use quanta. The residential uses are to be provided centrally within the quadrant extending from Grand Parade to Cherrywood Avenue. The design and layout of the Town Centre, shall be required to demonstrate that residential amenity is protected.
